Greetings bookish friends! Today I will be sharing with you my bullet journal spreads for November. This month I will be doodling some donuts — yum! I love how this month turned out, but my pictures are unintentionally blurry — please ignore that! Sorry this post is a little bit late, but I hope it gives you some inspiration or ideas anyway. Enjoy!
Supplies I Used:
An A5 Dotted Bullet Journal
Tombow Fudenosuke Calligraphy Brush Pen Soft Tip
I’ve currently been loving my new tombows! These are a really popular brush pen, and I can see why. The writing is smooth, doesn’t smudge and is easy to control.
Here is my front page with a cute donut quote to the left. I’m loving how this spread turned out, although I kind of went crazy with the donut doodles!
Next is my standard monthly log. To the left, I have a section for blog stats and Instagram stats.
This next spread is my money tracker, blog post ideas page, and books I’ve read section. Last month, I didn’t really fill out any of my trackers because I was kind of unmotivated to fill them out, but I’m really liking how my trackers are looking this month.
And lastly, here is my weekly spread! I decided to keep it simple with some donut doodles and boxes for dividing the days of the week.
Thank you for reading this post. Please follow my blog to receive email updates whenever I post.

I was tagged to do the 7 Favorite Things by Olivia from Purely Olivia, who by the way is totally awesome. I technically wasn’t tagged for this, but I asked her if I can do it and she said yes. This is kind of late and should have not procrastinated and posted this earlier, but whatever. Enjoy!
Link back to and thank the person that tagged you. Thanks, Olivia
Link back to and thank the blogger who began the tag. Thank you so much, Beth!

List the seven rules
I don’t have all of them
There we go yeehaw sis
This one is kind of cheesy, but whatever! Daydreaming is enjoyable and a great way to get good ideas.
You get idea from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time.
The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it.
They’re just so good, OK?
📝Poetry + Writing📝
As many of you already know, I am not only an avid reader, but a writer. One of my favorite types of writing is poetry. Although I rarely write poetry, I think it is beautiful.
Globes may seem like a random, insignificant household object, but oh boy, you’re wrong. Globes tell the story of the earth. It’s lakes, mountains, oceans, deserts, you name it. It is a tangible display of humanity’s regime on planet earth and a precise graph of existence and space. Wow, I am such an intelligent, observant scholar. You can find the timezone of a certain location in comparison to another. And, one can even see the center of the world.*
Also, it spins.
*Fun Fact: The center of the world is where the Equator and the Prime-Meridian meet, off the coast of West Africa
Person: Globes and poetry? And now plants? Wow, Katie needs to get out more no offense…
Me: Excuse me? Globes are awesome, poetry is beautifully artistic, and plants are amazing.
Person: *Coughs in spite of all the smoke because oooooof they got roasted so hard by Katie That Bookish Girl herself. Call 911, the world is on fire. 🔥
Just kidding, that wasn’t a roast, but globes, poetry, and plants are superb. First of all, plants are great for maintaining and keeping safe, refreshing, air quality levels in your home. Plants are also decorative and look good on a desk or a table. Not only that, but plants require little attention and care. All that is needed is a small amount of water every day, depending on what type of plant you are purchasing.
I have a houseplant on my desk named Josephine (yes, I name my plants 😂) and I really enjoy having her.
This one should be pretty obvious because I used a little bit of foreshadowing expressing my love for The Office a GIF ago.
My favorite character is, without a doubt, Pam Beesely.
Also Jim and Pam are sooooooooo perfect together. Whenever they’re on-screen together, my inner fangirl swoons inside.
I love blogging so much and think it is a great way to express yourself through writing and get recognition and feedback for your work. Also, the blogging community is so supportive, accepting, and kind.
Thank you to all the wonderful bloggers out there who make the blogosphere such a positive place.
All these bloggers and awesome and I love their posts. Don’t feel pressured to do the tag if you don’t want to! If you haven’t been tagged, but you would like to participate, leave me a comment and I’ll add you on.
Do you like globes? Is poetry worthwhile? Are you imaginative? What are some of your favorite things? Do you prefer Nutella or chocolate? Let me know in the comments.
